I had a small HO set up when i was younger. Now i have neither time nor space. That and i cant afford it thanks to this stupid photography addiction.


I want to die peacefully, in my sleep, like my grandfather.

That reminds me of the set-up at the Museum of Science & Industry in Chicago decades ago. I don't know if they still have it there. Has anyone seen it recently?

No. It belongs to a guy in town. Williamsport, PA. He calls it the "Dagus and Rockwood Railroad." I have never seen anything as detailed as this layout. I think you would have to go to Germany to see Knuffingen to surpass the level of detail and weathering.

Either would look nice in print. The first particularly so on metal...

Well there are a couple of ways you could remove the stanchion.
1) Get a heavy duty hacksaw. But Network Rail and the BTP might get a little bit upset if you did that.
2) Photoshop.

This took me about 30 minutes, there are a few anomalies in the overhead wires, and if you look carefully you can see the joins in the body panels. But working on the full size image and taking your time you should be able to do a decent job of it.

That's pretty good work, John! Now, if the sign & the fence weren't there... :lol:

Nebraska Zephyr at the Illinois Train Museum in Union, IL. The green is a reflection of the engine on the track next to it in the shed.

Yes, I know there is a WB issue. I'm tired of arguing with the computer about it for the time being.
